>>Well if you can actually do an in place upgrade on a flash disk based
eeePC I would stunned.
It might offer it but when it comes to the crunch it will probably fail
because it requires a couple of Gig free on / something that is not all
that easy to ensure on an eeePC.
Now if the installer would tell you WHERE on / it needs all the free
space then you could mount a USB stick.
If it would update in stages it would make it more practical to do
in-place upgrades on Disk constrained machines.
If the Ubuntu Netbook Release would ship by default with LVM then things
would be a lot simpler for netbook users.
UNR has been fine on the eee901 and 9.10 is fine on it too but required
a full install. When Fedora 12 releases I'll give it a try on the 901.
On the other hand if it were my daughter(s)'s netbook or my wife's
netbook I think I would have left it very much alone on 9.04 or 8.10 as
that was working fine too.
